WoW! Talk! #159: On Leveling, Raiding, and the Arbiter

May 27th, 2020

This week the gang is back to talk about what’s been going on in WoW. First, Rei gets into how the guild did raid content out of order and messed up their plans for the week. They also ran Normal Nya’lotha with alts. Eric then chimes in to talk about how more raiding with more people leads to a better raiding experience, and in particular cites the Vexiona fight as having mechanics that are easier with more raiders. Rei then gets back to talking about how it is hard to reach out to people across various social media platforms.

Harv and Nick focus on leveling. Harv talks about how much easier leveling is in retail WoW, while he and Nick lament how difficult it is to level in WoW Classic. Nick is in the alpha and talks about trying to level through Warlords of Draenor content and how either it is not quite implemented or he is doing it wrong. He also talks about a test run for Torghast and otherwise trying to avoid main questing content in Shadowlands.

In the news, Blizzard is adding Corruption vendors to WoW. Also, Blizzard released a preview of Oribos, and Chinese players are begging Blizzard to fix the gold sellers in the Pacific realms.

The gang reviews answers to last week’s question of the week, and this week, JoannaxBella in the chat asks, “You have one level cap boost – what would you use it on?”

Finally, Nick and Harv look back at WoW! Talk! #59.

Hosts

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.

Rei is the 1 of the 5 SEELE members and the Back Office Manager at MTB. She enjoys social gaming ( AKA gaming as a group IRL and GW / WoW ), cooking, anime, and spending WAY too much time organizing or making more spreadsheets.

Auto mechanic, car enthusiast, gamer, runner and almost never serious, Eric has been ditching responsibilities and gaming since age 7. His favorite genres are FPS and racing, although most of his game time is currently spent on WoW

Chris has been playing World of Warcraft since 2007. When he's not playing his hunter in Azeroth, he's probably playing one of his many alt hunters. If not doing that, he's probably playing a different hunter.
